Step Up; ellenor's Tower Run Challenge 

1 Tower, 35 Floors, 877 Steps

Take on the tower this autumn and ascend Broadgate Tower’s 877 steps to experience its breath-taking panoramic views of London from 541ft.

Rise to the ellenor tower run challenge and help change the lives of children and families facing terminal illnesses.

Your minimum sponsorship of £87 could help a sick child receive a session of chemotherapy in the sanctuary of their own home, saving stressful and costly hospital visits thereby allowing the family to stay together. 

As part of your registration fee all entrants will receive a technical t-shirt, medal and chip time upon completion of the stair challenge. 

The event is being support by stair climb experts Total Motion
